Furthermore, they can be playful, frolicsome, and somewhat stubborn, The dog originated in Siberia, and it eas introduced to America and canada via Alaska.  It had utility as a sled dog. Don't leave the dog alone for long periods because it's filled with energy and a need for companionship. The Inuit peoples used them to pull heavy sleds over long tundra treks. It's easy to understand why they always need exercise and human interaction hand-in-hand. Consider getting a second Husky to keep them occupied with one another. Initially, the herded reindeer, pulled sleds, and gave body heat to snuggling natives. Its main genetic problems are related to zinc deficiency and eye-related issues.

It?s slim, light, and stamina-centric. Dogs are 21 to approximately 24 inches high at the withers, and bitches are 20 to 22 inches high at the withers. Dogs weigh 45 to 60 pounds, and females come in at 35 to 50 pounds. They need a daily jog or long run to stay OK in an indoor setting. The Siberian Husky will display hyperactivity and howling because of an overactive hunting drive and a relationship to the wolf. Their double coat is smooth on the exterior and woolly and heavy on the inside. They come in copper, red, black, white, and various offshoots of those colors. Siberian Huskies live 12 to 15 years.

They were used during the Nome Gold Rush in the Alaskan Tundra. Eye issues include Corneal Dystrophy, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, and gastric issues like gastric disease, erosions, ulcerations, and, infrequently, bloat or gastric torsion.

This is called heterochromia. The eyes can even be parti-colored, that is, half blue and half brown all in one eye. The nose isn?t pointed or squared because it juts out in a rounded shape, and it can be black, liver, or flesh-colored. It looks like an Alaskan Malamute, Samoyed, and wild Gray Wolf. Siberian Huskies helped explorers and tribes weather the bitter blizzards and push forth into unknown lands, like the North Pole.

 

ANCESTRAL HISTORY - Indian tribe "CHUKCHI"

The origin of today's Siberian Husky can be traced to a nomadic Indian tribe called the Chukchi.

The Chukchi's relied upon their dogs for transportation to hunting grounds-without them they would have died. Only the best in harness and temperament were allowed to breed. In fact, the female dogs were pulled from the team when pregnant to assure the safety of the pups she carried-these dogs were the Chukchi's most valuable possession.

The women of the tribe were in charge of the females and pups, and made the decision as to which would survive. The Chukchi children played a large part in this selection process, as the puppies were placed in bed with them for warmth. During the day, the pups and children were playmates so it is logical to assure that any ill tempered or aggressive pups would be not be tolerated. This ensured the prized quality temperament of dogs allowed to breed.

 The Chukchi people were fiercely independent. Not only did they choose to live in one of the most barren and harsh regions of the Arctic, but they did not socialize with other tribes. They did barter with others when necessary for items such as tools, tea, and utensils. These "others" to the south had much larger dogs but could only harness six or eight at a time due to the aggressive nature of their dogs, while the Chukchi could harness a team of fifteen to twenty dogs who pulled in harmony, thanks to their careful breeding practice. The small "Chukchi dogs" became highly sought after due to their reputation as great hard working, well tempered, agreeable dogs.

Legend has it that the way you treat your husky in this life is how YOU will be treated in the afterlife.
